Easy Cherry Cheesecake Dessert

This is one of those 'saw it on pinterest and just had to try it' things. except....it didn't work out so well (which explains why I'm not linking that original post). The original was thick, gluey, bland and had wayyy too much crust. I hate, hate, hate when that happens! Especially when the original recipe was accompanied by beautiful photos. I mourned this dream of a dessert turned tasteless lump....then I got moving on fixing this thing! I added some of this, took out some of that....remade it 3 times...lol So here is what I finally came up with:

easy dessert


Ingredients:
1 pkg. cream cheese, softened 8 oz
1 jar marshmallow fluff 7oz  
2 tubs regular Whipped topping 8oz each
1 tsp Vanilla Extract   
1 can cherry pie filling 21oz
1 Box of graham crackers

Directions:
Crush 1 sleeve of graham crackers and spread out evenly in a 9X13 pan.
Mix cream cheese and marshmallow fluff on low till blended, about 1 minute.
Add in Vanilla extract on low. Mix about 1 more minute.
Mix in whipped topping until blended.
Spread in pan over graham cracker crust. 
Top with cherry pie filling.
This can now be served one of 2 ways. Either cut into squares and served with a square cake server or served as a dip. You can break the last 2 sleeves of graham crackers into single sticks and serve this as a dip. It's a little thick, but makes a yummy dip. This worked out well for the first party I took it to...however at the second party they started serving it as squares and eating it like pie. Yummy! 
Either way it was easy, fast and using the cheaper 'on sale' ingredients didn't affect the outcome at all! 
Enjoy!
